Voke 0.45mg inhaler for smoking cessation – first line

Record ID 32016000642
Authors' objectives: Nicotine is a highly addictive drug that is found in all tobacco products. Around 50% of all regular tobacco smokers will eventually die from smoking-related causes. Smoking is becoming less popular in the UK but still remains a leading cause of death and disease. Voke 0.45mg inhaler is a new nicotine replacement device for people who want to reduce, replace, or stop smoking. It is a rechargable stick that is designed to look and feel like a traditional tobacco cigarette. It works in a similar way to an asthma inhaler, delivering nicotine as and when required to help satisfy nicotine cravings. Voke 0.45mg inhaler has been studied to see how well it works in comparison to other nicotine replacement therapies. Voke 0.45mg inhaler has been licensed for use in the UK, and will provide a new treatment option for smokers who want to reduce, replace, or stop smoking.
